Richard Connell, Ph.D

Dr. Richard Connell, owner of Connell & Associates, grew up in the Texas panhandle, where he was a self-proclaimed “computer geek” before the era of the personal computer. Due to the guidance of an especially inspiring mathematics instructor, he initially planned to study computer engineering, but changed his field of study after he learned he had little interest in computing and had an innate love for psychology.

“There’s nothing more fascinating than the human mind,” Dr. Connell said. “I found I’m the sort of person that people always came to with their problems. I have a gift for that. I enjoy helping people. It’s really rewarding to help identify a problem and set that person on a course for improvement or recovery.”

Dr. Connell attained his undergraduate degree from Southwest Texas State University, now Texas State University, and attained his doctorate in psychology at the University of North Texas.

He believes in a therapeutic approach that treats both the mind and the body. “I want Connell & Associates to move in the direction of treating the whole person – helping people to make the connection between emotional health and physical health,” he said.

Dr. Connell enjoys wood working and traveling overseas, of which he and his wife have done a significant amount recently, visiting multiple countries in western and central Europe. He is proud to have a son who is an electrical worker in the field of renewable energy, and a daughter who is pursuing a career in forensic psychology.

    Awesome clinicians working here. I was able to get my child's diagnosis so I can get him services. Early diagnosis is the the key. My son is autistic and has ADHD as well as other health issues. Kisd was able to get my son the services he needed based on his diagnosis he received at this office. My son is now 6 and has made a 200 percent improvement due to reviewing intervention early on.

    Dr. Connell was very easy to talk to. He listen to all of my concerns and addressed them. Him and his staff made me feel comfortable. I have been waiting for over a year for a appointment at scott and white. As soon as I called his office I received a appointment right away.

    Dr. Connell's office has been professional and courteous. My husband and I like how well he listens to our concerns and how we explain ourselves about our daughter. We are hopeful on this new path with his help with our daughter.

    Doctor Connell and his staff went out of their way to assist my daughter and I with the process of obtaining a diagnosis (report) and submitting referrals for the care she needed. This was an acutely difficult period for both she and I, as it was her first diagnosis and testing experience. All around they were patient, kind, thorough and efficient. Highly Recommended!

    Very friendly staff, enjoyable office area and the staff did a wonderful job helping us learn more. Dr. Connell is good and explains things in plain English and not medical terms. Felt very re-assured we will get the help we need for our family.

    When you walk into the office you are welcomed right away. You don't have to wait.for someone. It doesn't have the feeling of most Dr.'s offices. It has a relaxing feel which is important for the children.
